Fiji Airways is adding 14 extra flights to its New Zealand schedule, from Christchurch to Fiji during the peak season.
The added flights will operate between June and December 2016, giving South Islanders more travel options during the cooler months.
Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO commented: “New Zealand is a key growth market for Fiji Airways, as highlighted in our Five Year Master Plan. These additional flights reflect our commitment to growing the New Zealand market, and will increase capacity between Christchurch and Nadi by a further 2,380 available seats.”
Christchurch Airport Chief Commercial Officer – Aeronautical, Justin Watson, says the additional flights are sure to be very popular with southern travellers.
He says. “Fiji Airways offers any number of holiday options, from a quick getaway, a ten day stop, longer still or travel to points across the Pacific and on to North America’.
The new flights are on sale now and offer travel options in both Business and Economy class on the B737-800 aircraft.
Fiji Airways is the only airline to offer child discounted airfares as well as a daily business class travel option directly from New Zealand to Fiji.
